You are welcome to come up to school any time after August 6th to complete your letters, make copies, etc.

Order your staff shirt to be worn on August 15th! See Dianna for details!

Something Different!

This year we are going to visit our neighborhoods with the first annual Norton Popsicle Patrol! After convocation on August 15th, we will have a catered lunch at Norton and then head out to a few pre-determined locations in the neighborhoods we serve to greet kids and hand out Popsicles. We will send out an email blast to parents the week before to let families know our schedule so they can come out and see us. Students will not yet know their class assignments, so we will smile, wave, and spread some cheer before moving on to the next location. We would love to decorate our buses with some signs so we will welcome volunteers to paint some banners on Friday, August 12th.

Personal Days - Important

As you plan for next year, please remember that our absence policy changed this year. Employees may take no more than 3 consecutive personal days. There will be no exceptions made this year. If you take more than 3 personal days in a row, you will be docked. Please plan carefully and make use of our scheduled vacation days!
